Over Mike WiLL’s heavy-hitting production, the trio comes out swinging. “I will push your teeth back like Malice with the Clipse,” raps 2 Chainz, while Eearz delivers the anthemic hook: “Kill they ass with success, they won’t like that.”
“I approached the music by first watching Creed II and then creating a playlist of songs people could work out to, chill to, vibe to or to get them through any struggle which matched specific scenes in the movie,” Mike WiLL told Variety. “It’s important to show the new generation that soundtracks can be just as exciting as traditional albums if put in the hands of the right curator. After people hear the music, I want them to say movie soundtracks are back.”
Creed II: The Album arrives Nov. 21. The Ryan Coogler-directed film, starring Michael B. Jordan and Sylvester Stallone, opens in theaters the same day.
